Black Music Style Icons: Celebrating Prince (On His 55th Birthday!)

PrinceFashionDM_468x553

We’re ready to paint the day purple. Music royalty and all around genius Prince Rogers Nelson celebrates his 55th birthday today. There’s no one better to kick off our celebration of Black Music Month than with a legend of soul, funk and rock… and so much style. Whether he sets a guitar on fire, brings men to tears with sentimental strokes of piano keys, or pulsates on the stage in the throes of unrequited love, Prince has a level of mastery that we have not yet seen replicated in our generation. And that’s just the music. There’s no style the fearless fashion icon has not tried, from chaps and gravity defying heels, to a press and curl woman would die for.
